gallery saturday.

6 Dec 2010

After a lovely Saturday brunch at Trestle on Tenth, Daniel and I headed into galleryland, where we caught a handful of pretty amazing shows.  At the Michael Wolf exhibit at the Bruce Silverstein Gallery, we stumbled onto a most wonderful surprise: in the back room was a wee exhibit, curated by Wolf, of Andre Kertesz’s photographs of New York City.  I love Kertesz!  Daniel snapped a pic of me staring deeply into one of the photos.  Our ultimate destination was the Anselm Kiefer show, Next Year in Jerusalem, over at the Gagosian.  Sweet lord, you all must see this show.  It was extraordinary on so many levels: the unusual, and sometimes monumental, combination of media; the use of photography to interrogate the past; the interplay between scripture and materiality; the sheer perfomative nature of the exhibit itself.  And don’t get me started on the ruins.
